I have a sinus infection and was put on cefdinir, and prednisone. I have a wedding to attend in 4 days. Can I drink alcohol while on these?

I have a sinus infection and was put on cefdinir, and prednisone. I have a wedding to attend in 4 days. Can I drink alcohol while on these?

SPARINGLY: The small glasses of champagne to toast the wedding couple is fine, but would not exceed that. Alcohol interferes with the ability of white blood cells to fight infection, and in general is not a good fit with antibiotic treatment. A very limited amount should not cause a problem, but tying one on certainly might.

You should be ok: You should not notice any adverse effects. Cefdinir is usually prescribed in 300mg tabs twice a day but can also be taken as 600mg once daily. Even a one time dose of two 600mg pills shouldn`t cause any problems.

Cefdinir side effects?

Minimal: Outside of allergic reactions, which are not unique to cefdinir, none of the cephalosporins have side-effects which are very significant. They include cases of gastrointestinal discomfort with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and rash as occasional occurrences. Sold as omnicef, it is one of several oral cephalosporins.

What happens if I'm allergic to clindymicin am I allergic to cefdinir?

No: Cefdinir is a third generation cephalosporin and clindamycin is a macrolide derivative. They are unrelated so you should not be allergic to cefdinir.

How long does it take for cefdinir to start helping bronchitis? We're on day three and not seeing improvement.

Likely viral: Most of the time people go to a doctor for coughing, congestion and drainage and request help with treatment. Typically these condtions are viral or allergic related and antibiotics will not do anything to help "clear" them any faster than regular rest and otc drugs will. If you are having significant wheezing you need to consider breathing treatments and return to your doctor for further eval.

Diagnosed with acute sinusitis10 days ago. Fnp put me on omnicef (cefdinir) 300mg 2x daily for 10 days and some other decongestants. Has not improved. Should I go back, or give it more time/what else can I do?

Need re-examination: After 10 days on an antibiotic, your symptoms should have improved, though maybe not 100%. If not improved at all, might need stronger antibiotic, prescription nasal spray, etc. I also recommend saline nasal spray or sinus irrigation such as with a nettie pot. Take Guaifenesin (mucinex) also to thin out the secretions.
